A Beautiful Monochromatic Presentation Box

Good afternoon to you all
As I write this the new engine is being lowered into Matt's car (fingers crossed) - do hope it all works when they get it in their

So whilst they have been getting messy under the bonnet, I have been getting messy in the Beach Hut, you see I cannot go anywhere as they are using my car and little me for popping to get bits if they need them.  I feel like a little yo yo :)

Yesterday I escaped for a little while and had arranged to meet Jill at the Hobby House, it was lovely to be able to have a catch up with her, and please note the Hobby House is back open after all the snow but do be careful getting there and is opening a little longer this year so if you are local you will be able to pop and get yourselves some more delish stash.  I got some lovely new bits and cannot wait to play.

I still have not been shopping for food so Matt may not have any pack up next week and dinner is not looking good either :(  and once I have posted this I need to get on with some ironing so I can have non disturbed viewing of X Factor this evening - I am praying for Matt Cardle to win :)

So this is a box I have made to put something in, the something will be posted later as part of my Winter Wonderland DT inspiration

I added lace around the side and then some ribbed black ribbon.  The top papers are black card and Papermania Capsule Collection mono (I love a bit of black and white)  So I have used some creatables die's and some lace, some diamante gems and a little house mouse all finished off with a spray of flowers and a spray over with some silver glitter (loving this spray glitter and Jane you are so right it is addictive)

I am entering this into the following challenges

Lovley box Kate, what happened to all the close up? Was waiting for the one of the mouse image and got to the end of the post without one :o(

Is it stamped and slightly coloured or just stamped?

I have the gold glitter, and yes, it is very addictive!!!!!
